Google to Search, as Microsoft to Desktop?

Everyone knows Google is the King of search, and Hitwise released some data to confirm the fact: Google has increased its share of volume of U.S. searches from 59.3% to 60.2% for the month of July. When Om visited the Googleplex last month, he discussed this point, of how important search is to Google, and how it’s still the brains behind the entire show.

With Google’s search share still growing, this begs the question: When it comes to search can Google get as big as Microsoft is in the desktop? Like those good ol’ standardized English tests, does the equation match? Send us your thoughts!
